Biodiesel Magazine: USU’s Mike Morgan Sets More Biodiesel-Powered Speed Records

Posted on September 15th, 2014

From Biodiesel Magazine (September 12, 2014):

Yet again, Utah State University ingenuity and perseverance were on display at Utah’s famed Bonneville Salt Flats as Aggie undergrad Mike Morgan set new speed records with USU-made biofuels.

“This is where the world pays attention,” said Morgan, a biochemistry major who raced a modified light truck in multiple trials during the Utah Salt Flats Association’s 2014 World of Speed event Sept. 6-9. “We’re demonstrating biofuels rival petroleum-based fuels in performance.”

Morgan conducts research with USU biochemistry professor Lance Seefeldt and Ralph Whitesides, USU Extension weeds specialist and professor in the Department of Plants, Soils and Climate. The young researcher also serves as co-chair of the National Biodiesel Board’s Next Generation Scientists for Biodiesel partnership program.
